Biographical history

Pierre Dumoulin was born Coaticook on 17 May 1902 to Samuel Dumoulin and Cyrilda Paquette. Amarilda Larivière was born on 21 August 1901 to Dolor Larivière and Élise Bouvier. The couple married in Rock Island on 30 August 1920 and together they had the following children: Gertrude (1921-1992), Thérèse (b. 1923), Léonard (1924), Normand (1926), Madeleine (1927-2011), André (192-2011), Paul (1929-2010), Guy (1930), François (1932), Marcel (1934), Jacques (1935), Jean-Maurice (1936-2013), Rosaire (1937-2013), Charles-Auguste (1939), Jules (1940), Jean-Claude (1943), Luc (1945), and Vincent (1947-1966).
Jean-Maurice Dumoulin was born in Coaticook on 4 July 1936 to Pierre Dumoulin and Amarilda Larivière. As a young boy, he felt called by God to join the seminary. This decision was short-lived, however, and soon after he withdrew from the seminary and joined the choir instead. At the age of 14, he began his first job at Penman’s, and from the ages of 15 to 20 he worked in the evening at Coaticook Textile and on the weekends at Daigle & Frères, returning all his earnings to his mother. As an adult, Jean-Maurice left Coaticook for Montreal and eventually obtained a degree as a psycho-educator and worked for 20 years in Sherbrooke with mentally handicapped children. He married and had two children: Sarah and Nadia. He retired from teaching after 20 years and purchased a farm in Kingscroft. Following the dissolution of his marriage, Jean-Maurice sold the farm and worked as the custodian at the convent of La Présentation. During his lifetime, Jean-Maurice was involved in a variety of volunteer and community groups. He died on 7 February 2013 in Sherbrooke.
